Steve Komphela has confirmed that he is leaving his position as head coach of Golden Arrows to join Mamelodi Sundowns with immediate effect.
The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor issued a press statement on Monday morning thanking Arrows chairperson Mato Madlala and announcing that he was teaming up with his protégé Rulani Mokwena and Manqoba Mnqgithi, who were appointed joint head coaches at Chloorkop last weekend following the shock resignation of Pitso Mosimane.
Mosimane joined Al Ahly on a lucrative two-year contract.
“I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Chairperson of Lamontville Golden Arrows, Mato Madlala and to Golden Arrows FC for their support and encouragement to me whilst I was Head Coach of Golden Arrows,” said Komphela in a statement.
“I have been given an exciting opportunity to join Mamelodi Sundowns as Senior Coach and to work with its Joint Head Coaches, Manqoba Mnqgithi and Rulani Mokwena.”
“I look forward to this exciting challenge and hope to contribute to the growth and success of Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa and on the African continent.”
